Radio Tarifa
Cruzando El Rio und Fiebre
Bunks sagen:

Tarifa ist der südlichste Punkt Spaniens mit Sichtkontakt zu Marokkos Tanger und einen Katzensprung von Gibraltar entfernt. Dort gibt es tatsächlich keine Radio Station aber dafür drei Musiker, die in Madrid in den späten 80igern zusammenkamen und Ihre Session Gruppe so nannten.

Diese Gruppe ist einfach fantastisch in Hinblick auf die Zusammenführung von Arabischer und Spanischer Musik. Durch die Improvisation zusammen mit verschiedenen arabischen Künstlern wie Khaled u.a. unterstreichen sie die Ursprünge der südspanischen Musik und des Flamenco.

In einem englischen Text über Radio Tarifa sagt Charlie Gillett vom   BBC London: .

It was as a way of signifying their celebration of the musical crossroads of the imagination they were exploring. Ever since the release of their first album Rumba Argelina in 1993, they have drawn critical accolades both in Spain and abroad. Their music is not so much a fusion as a mosaic of Iberian cultures past and present - a celebration of all things Mediterranean and modal.

Though for live performances they use an expanded multi-cultural line-up, the three core musicians still come up with most of Radio Tarifa¹s recorded music.

Faín S. Dueñas contributes many of the Arabic flavours with his use of oud, gimbri (Moroccan banjo) and percussion instruments like the darbuka. Vincent Molino plays an astonishing array of exotic and archaic wind instruments which often give their music a mediaeval feel. The grainy wheeze of crumhorn, the Egyptian double clarinet, and the ney are just a few of his favourites. Finally, the charismatic singer and front man Benjamín Escoriza brings his compulsively listenable smoky voice and experience of flamenco to the mix.

The songs themselves are often sourced from Arabo-Andalucian, Jewish and Christian traditions with updated lyrics and radical arrangements that effectively make them entirely new creations.

Their third album Cruzando El Río was released earlier this year and seen by many as a return to form. It took their innovations several steps further, introducing electric guitar, their first female guest vocalists and even a version of a Japanese folk song. Fans have come to expect the unexpected from these mercurial Spanish innovators.

Last news about Radio Tarifa:

Radio Tarifa’s ‘Fiebre’ album has been nominated in the Best Folk Album category for this year’s Latin Grammy Awards.

The 5th Annual Latin Grammy Awards ceremony will took place on September 1st 2004 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, and will be broadcast live across the USA on CBS Television.
